McCOTTER on bin Laden: We have dispatched a murderer, not his movement

McCotter Statement on bin Laden: Today we rejoice in the triumph of justice 

Washington, D.C. – In response to the  death of Osama bin Laden, U.S. Representative Thaddeus G. McCotter issued the following statement on the House Floor today:


“Today, we do not revel over the death of bin Laden ‘the Butcher’ - we rejoice in the triumph of justice.  We thank our citizen soldiers, intelligence community, and the Obama Administration for finishing this mission and we forever remember the fallen and comfort the families who so grievously suffered on September 11, 2001.  Now let us press our efforts against Al Qaeda and their terrorist cohorts, including Hamas, Hezbollah, and the tyrannical Iranian regime.  For while our world has witnessed justice, our world remains dangerous and we must be ever vigilant against such clear and present threats to our liberty and security.  We have dispatched a murderer, not his movement. We have won a battle, not our struggle.  But in so succeeding, we have served notice to every terrorist, tyrant, and tyrannical regime that we will win.”
